    Baltimore holds a job and more importantly a place to live with my brother.

    I know it is still a place that does not acknowledge all of the 2nd amendment, but coming from NY it is still a huge step up. NY is a May Issue Permit to Purchase State. So, for me just being able to purchase and start becoming proficient in the use of a handgun is a large move in the right direction.

    In NY I grew up with rifles and shotguns. My father taught me gun safety and marksmanship when I was very young. Both of my brothers are also quite proficient with rifles. That said handguns in our area were rare even before many of today's laws. So, now that is something I need to practice. That and teaching myself to shoot rifles/shotguns lefty (Cross Dominant).

    Anyways enough of the tangent. How likely is this to go through? I understand that the odds are probably not great.

    Non-resident permits. Last I checked non-res permits are on the books in MD.

    Non-resident permits are basically never given out. They are even scarcer than resident permits.

    So, obviously I'd love to see this pass, but it's a snowball's chance. The judiciary committee is packed with gun-fearing wussies, so it'll probably not make a vote, and a veto is almost assured if it gets to the governor's desk. The same thing happened last year...

    How about this very political response

    I took some action and contacted MD legislators, check out the reply:

    "Thank you for your correspondence regarding HB470.

    My mission is to ensure any legislative acts and bills are for the people
    and not to harm the people and I will support bills toward that
    effort.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to
    contact my office.

    Thank You
    Delegate Jill P. Carter
    41st District
    Lowe House Office Building - Room 317
    Annapolis, MD 21401"

    Is that a NO!...?

    He's a politician so that means it's a NO! I'd say contact his office (like he said) and see why he thinks the bill will "harm the people".

    It's not a yes and it's not a no. It's a generic CYA answer that makes it sound like she agrees with whatever you happen to.

    She's a Baltimore Democrat, so I wouldn't have high hops on a yes vote here.

    I'd love to see both Maryland and Washington DC pass concealed carry permits for residents and then sign reciprocity agreements with Virginia. I live close to both and have to leave it at home before I go into either.

    There'd have to be a big change in people's opinions for this to pass. It took the Supreme Court to even recognize that you could have a gun in your own house in DC. In Maryland, I think you have to have actual documented threats against your life to get a carry permit. But perhaps someday...
